Why is the Vertex Bike Fitting System simply better than ALL OTHER fit bikes?

The Vertex Fit Cycle changes bike fitting forever. The Vertex bike fitting system is unique in function, on the Vertex Fit Cycle the rider remains stationary while contact points move around the athlete. The Vertex is fully automated via digital motors and easily changes fit parameters under high rider power output. The Vertex Fit Cycle is intuitive, very precise and provides athlete performance optimization with position to power comparison.

Saddle Height Adjustment
Vertex: Adjust saddle height to the mm with wireless control, saddle height displayed in real time. All other fit parameters remain stationary. Athlete: Instantly feels effects of saddle height changes
All other fit bikes: Adjust saddle height using a hand wheel, a screwdriver, a quick-release, a PC, etc. Drop to bars and reach to bars changes. Effective seat angle changes

Seat Angle Adjustment
Vertex: Control precise seat angle to the 0.1 degree. Or swing through a range of seat angles. Real-time digital angle feedback. All other fit parameters remain stationary. Athlete: Instantly feels effect of seat angle change ONLY.
All other fit bikes: Push saddle forward or back with hand wheels, screwdrivers, quick releases, a PC, etc. Whats the new seat angle?? Saddle height changes. Reach to bars changes.

Front End Stack and Reach
Vertex:Precise digital control of front end position in X and Y. Athlete: Instant feedback as to the effect of independent or coordinated stack and reach changes as the fitter chooses.

Saddle Changes
Vertex: Saddles preloaded in adjustable cassettes means saddle height NEVER CHANGES no matter how many saddles you try. Easy saddle tilt adjustment ensures saddle is at proper tilt before the rider sits, and can be quickly adjusted while the rider pedals. All other fit parameters remain fixed. Saddle swaps take seconds; rider stays mounted. Athlete: Feels ONLY the new saddle.
All other fit bikes: Changing saddle can result in changes to saddle tilt, saddle height, effective seat angle, bar drop and reach. Swaps can take minutes. Athletes may have to dismount. No easy tilt control.
